PUBLIC SERVICE REPORT
The Lehi City Police Department provides police service to our community.
The Department has trained its personnel to provide consistent and
professional service at all times. As a member of our community, you can
assist the Department in ensuring that this level of service maintains that
high level of expectation. We encourage your participation. We want you to
give us information when you observe actions by the Lehi Police Department
or individual employees which you believe needs our attention. These can be
both those actions which you find rewarding and those you might believe are
not at an acceptable level of professional police service.
You may report your observations in person, by letter, or on the telephone.
The Lehi Police Department does accept anonymous information, but we
would prefer that you provide us with your identity. Anonymous reports are
investigated only to the extent which the information allows; which may not
be satisfactory to you or the Department.
You should expect that your initial contact will be with a supervisor of the
Lehi Police Department. The supervisor will prepare the actual Public Service
Report and conduct a preliminary investigation. This is to ensure that all
relevant and available information is gathered when it is still fresh. Your
cooperation is very important particularly in identifying witnesses and
allowing us to accumulate evidence including photographs and medical
treatment records, if necessary.
A member of the Lehi Police Department will be assigned to investigate your
report. You should expect to hear from that person within a couple of days.
The investigator will attempt to arrange for a convenient time and location to
conduct a formal interview with you. This interview, as are all of our
interviews, will be tape recorded.
An essential part of this investigation is the direct contact with the involved
police employees. In the case of a commendation, your report will become
part of his/her personnel file. In other cases, they will be interviewed in a
similar fashion to your interview. These police employees will be instructed
not to contact you unless it is a response to a police service need.
We strive to complete all of these Public Service Report investigations within
30 days. Normally the review process takes a few more days. You will be
notified of the outcome of the investigation.
Citizens, such as you, are valuable eyes and ears for our community and its
Police Department. We respect your input, both good and bad. Whenever
you see police actions which you believe we should be aware of, please report
those to us.
